Grounding Our Values in Data: the Financial Health of Community-Based Development Organizations
Location: Virtual

Nationally, $27.7 billion was driven through 5,720 community-based development organizations (CBDOs) in 2018, according to a first-of-its-kind study on their financial health. Initiated by NACEDA with data collected by the Urban Institute, the study culminates almost 18 months of research that reached back almost 20 years into CBDO tax filings. During this summit session, experts will use data and experience to offer a snapshot of the CBDO field. Hear from NACEDA, the lead researchers, and CBDOs about what this information could mean for community developers.

Policy, Resources, Capacity Building & the Future of Community-Based Development Organizations
Location: Virtual

NACEDA’s Grounding Values research has begun to reveal where the field of community-based development organizations has been and what the field has become — but where do we need to go next? Where does your organization fit in this sector’s future? What are the equity implications this data may suggest? A panel of sector stakeholders — funders, advocates, capacity builders, and leaders — will discuss the recommendations of the report, the realities of implementing these changes, and actionable ways for those who care about this field to take next steps.
